Smart and eco-friendly offices know that going green starts with making the right hardware decisions.

Here are some tips to help you make greener hardware choices:

  • Look for the ENERGY STAR certified products when purchasing hardware, because they use up to 60 percent less energy than conventional products.
  • Consider consolidating to an MFP-only setup, which use about 40 percent less energy than offices that have a separate machine for each.
  • Consider refurbished equipment as a “green” alternative to new.
  • Buy or lease your office hardware from a local company to reduce the distance your items have to be transported and serviced.
  • Find copiers, printers and MFPs that have “green” functions, such as a duplexing.

Capital Business Systems can help your office choose the right hardware to effectively and efficiently complete all of your projects, while still keeping energy usage low.
